I had my second appt with Costco Monday to try out the KS7 and run through some more testing. The fitter at Costco said this would give me a chance to see how the HA’s would feel in and on my ear and give me a very general idea of how they would help my hearing.
She went through some of the features and just set up two programs (automatic & noise) so that I could see the difference the programs can make in the way the HA’s work. She also told me to take full advantage of their 180 day trial period because an hour at the store only gives one a very basic idea of how they work. I was told at a minimum give it at least 60-90 days to get accustomed to using them and trying the features.
I placed my order and will go in next Tuesday for the fitting and was told to set up a follow up appt for two weeks. Also same as Doc she suggested keeping a journal especially during those first two weeks and if anything does not seem right, tinny sounding voices or anything else come back in and they will make adjustments to the HA’s. Also was told not to get discouraged or frustrated because they will do whatever they can to fine tune them for my situation.
